Estimating Utility Values for Health States of Overweight and Obese Individuals using the SF-36

Kortt, Michael A; Clarke, Philip


Objective: To use health-related quality-of-life (HRQoL) data from the Australian 1995 National Health Survey to estimate the impact of obesity (as measured by body mass index or BMI) on utility and quality-adjusted life expectancy (QALE).
